Play to benefit local shelter, counselling centre

VDay White 2

I’m writing to inform you of another upcoming event V-Day Oliver-Osoyoos 2014 is hosting. On Friday, April 4th, 2014 our production of ‘A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and a Prayer’; will be held at the newly constructed Frank Venables Theatre, located adjacent to Oliver’s South Okanagan Secondary School. The 7 pm performance will be following by a “Meet the Cast” wine reception.

V-Day’s mission is to raise awareness and funds to help stop violence against women and girls. This is the 2nd year our group is working hard to support this cause. This year funding will go to assist local organizations, Desert Sun Counselling and Resource Center and ONTEH, the Okanagan Nation Transition Emergency House.

On March 8th, 2014 we hosted ‘Stop the Violence: A Celebration and Art Show’ at the OIB Community Hall. This was a very successful, which featured submissions by local artists, traditional dancing as well as guest speakers and a reception.

Your attendance and support would be greatly appreciated! Tickets are $25 and include one refreshment. They can be purchased at Beyond Bliss and Desert Sun in Oliver and JoJo’s Cafe in Osoyoos.

We appreciate your support in helping us in our efforts to stop violence against women and girls. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information. Please check out our website: and do not hesitate to contact me for further information.

Warmest Regards,
